Kovatch Mobile Equipment Corp. (KME) is recalling certain 2007-2012 KME Predator Pumper, 2013 Predator SS Aerial, 2007 Predator Aerial, 2008-2011 Predator Rescue, and 2007 Predator Tanker vehicles, equipped with Timoney Independent Front Suspensions. Inconsistent machining may result in fatigue cracks developing over time in the front axle spindles, causing failure of the spindle and the possible separation of a front wheel from the vehicle.

  • Hazard
    A wheel separation from the vehicle can increase the risk of a crash.
  • Consumer Action
    KME will notify owners, and dealers will replace the front axle spindle, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin April 30, 2018. Owners may contact KME customer service at 1-800-235-3928.
